A spinal cord injury can change your life

When a person suffers a spinal cord injury, there is a good chance that his or her life will never be the same. For example, you may require full-time care after this type of injury.

Unfortunately, there are times when a spinal cord injury is the result of the negligence of another party. When this happens, it’s imperative for the injured party to learn more about his or her legal rights.

Some of the most common situations that lead to a spinal cord injury include:

  • Motor vehicle accident
  • Construction accident
  • Motorcycle accident
  • Slip and fall accident
  • Surgical error

  • Cost of revisions to ensure that your home is handicap accessible
  • Loss of current and future income
  • Pain and suffering
